Colts Update

Another solid week of training finished and colts are starting to settle into their work. Numbers are starting to increase and it's important the players start taking ownership of their season. We are only as strong as out weakest link and the coaching staff have been working since October to make sure the 2019 season is the best it can be. From the end of the 2018 season to the start of the following season is the busiest and most stressful period of a Rugby coach. So much preparation is needed plus all the admin responsibilities, meetings and think tanks and helping players with finding jobs plus all the bits around the edges of new players joining the club.

Jayson and his team have exceeded all these demands on his time and focus and all this is because he wants to see the players achieve as much as they can from their rugby Club rugby is about providing a culture and opportunities for ambitious players who want to play at the elite level and those that want to play with there mates, some clubs focus just on the top end and some clubs the bottom and some clubs are still trying to figure out what they are trying to do. 

Southern Districts has their culture and their role in Australian Rugby in tune with their community values.

This is on show every home game with great crowds well organised game days, good rugby by the grade teams and also our very good womens 7s team. The Colts teams over the past few years have started to show that they are a force in Colts Rugby and the sleeping giant is starting to stir but to be one of the leading clubs we have to keep training hard, get the fitness levels up, understand the game plans and implement them and most importantly make the competition for spots competitive and the season so much more enjoyable and getting clean sweeps is not a bad way to spend a Saturday and nothing better than a Forshaw crowd going off! 

So stop watching Home and Away get to training and put in the effort and remember the harder you work the luckier you will get in the game.
